Wymondham Medical Practice staff raise hundreds for Star Throwers in memory of colleague

A charity quiz night was organised by staff at Wymondham Medical Practice, Postmill Close, to raise money for Star Throwers in memory of a colleague who lost her life to cancer this year.

A total of £631 was raised by Laura Maddams and Sue Brown through numerous activities including the quiz, games and estimating the weight of a cake baked by Jane Bull.

Their colleague Beverley Rudrum, 51, passed away on February 8. She joined the medical practice in 1996 and during her illness she frequently visited Star Throwers for support, as well as raising money for Star Throwers by knitting.

The total also comprised of money raised by Nurse Julie Hatton who completed a 100 mile sponsored walk in Scotland and nurse Sarah Phinn who donated proceeds from the sale of jewellery she made.

Our sincerest thanks to Laura, Sue, Jane, Julie, Sarah and all who made donations in memory of Beverley.
